What Women Are Saying About 9 Lives for Women

Kudos for the May, 2016 MAKE WORK FIT LIFE Event

Make Work Fit Life was really a fabulous event! I got so much out of it. I took a ton of notes, and the info that I got from several of the panels even helped me make some decisions and negotiate for a new job that I just accepted today! AND I am going to have the flexibility I was looking for to be able to continue to help my 94-year-old mother!” —B.W., Darien, CT

“Make Work Fit Life was very inspiring and shed much new promising light to the future. Feeling very empowered with a new career wingspan—thanks to your vision and program.” —M.M., Easton, CT 

Make Work Fit Life was outstanding!!  I loved your panels, topics and networking opportunities that you created throughout the day.  I’ve been to many conferences but this was honestly one of the best I’ve attended. You provided lots of knowledge, connections and tools I can go out and use.  You also took a lot of anxiety out of the job search process!  I feel excited and energized, so thank you! —J.A., Wilton, CT

 “The Make Work Fit Life event was a resounding success. High value content for current and returning professionals. Bravo!” —L.P. in Somers, NY

“Thank you so much for the excellent Make Work Fit Life Event. I was truly enriched and impressed by the event’s flow and atmosphere. The sessions and your moderating were on the highest level that I’ve experienced in professional development events. It was so valuable to hear people speak with candor. I’ve already made a great connection for a project for which I might possibly fit. Thank you and all who spoke for educating me on flexible work through your expertise. I have renewed hope about my ‘Act II’ and restoring my income to help fund my teen’s future college and my own retirement.” —C.M., Tarrytown, NY

“The Make Work Fit Life event was an amazing and enriching day.  I really enjoyed hearing how to phrase the volunteer work within a resume. As one of the Moms returning to work after a lot of volunteering, I’ve been many years sucked into that void of tons of work without pay.  I’m ready for pay…I really need the pay now! I’m inspired!” —M.C., New York, NY

“Thank you so much for such a great Make Work Fit Life event!!!  It was incredibly informative. I hope you plan on doing it again in the future.” K.P., New Canaan, CT

“The Make Work Fit Life event was fantastic event for women at all different stages of their life but with unified goals. You provided an excellent forum for discussion with thought-provoking dialogue. I’ve always felt there was a void of conversation around the importance of work/life and making it all fit. Well done by you! Women left the event feeling motivated and inspired.” —K.L., Fairfield, CT
